Qupirruit: insects and worms in Inuit traditions / Frédéric Laugrand, Jarich Oosten.

Title: Qupirruit: insects and worms in Inuit traditions / Frédéric Laugrand, Jarich Oosten.
Author(s): Laugrand, Frédéric.
Oosten, Jarich.
Date: 2010.
In: Arctic Anthropology. (2010.), Vol. 47(1) (2010)
Abstract: Examines symbolism associated with insects (qupirruit) and worms in Inuit traditional belief. Demonstrates that small animals can be considered to operate on level of tarniq, miniature image of being; also that insects connect different scales, and can easily transform into other beings. Considers perceptions of insects as they take shape in narratives and practices, and their roles in manufacture and use of amulets.
